How Wine Is a Stunningly Good Anti-aging Weapon

How Wine Is a Stunningly Good Anti-aging Weapon

'Red wine is a ladies' drink'; if you are averse to alcohol, especially to its usual, piquant taste, you must have been suggested with the lightness of red wine by officious onlookers. That surely isn't a remote possibility when you are a lady and of age. Cautious introspection backed with years of medical or scientific research tells millions how wine, when consumed in moderation, helps improve a woman's physical health: the facet of mental health can be taken for granted as inebriation of most kinds results in mood elevation. It is therefore a ladies drink indeed.

While being perturbed about the health of your skin, the sagging cheek muscles, a double chin or wrinkles that start showing once women are in their thirties, you must have rarely conjured the image of a vineyard to relax and repair. A vineyard can actually be your key source to youthful skin. Take a look at the following points to believe the same:

  1. Red wine can act as an anti-aging intervention in case of both men and women. A glass of wine every day can keep a woman's skin young and taut while two glasses of the same drink can let a man enjoy the look of a young adult.
  2. Free radicals are active causes of aging. Red wine is rich in antioxidants and thus can do away with such radicals. Many use grapes and grape juice for a glowing skin. Grape juice is way less effective as compared to wine as the latter contains the seed and skin of the fruit during fermentation. The fruit as a whole has polyphenols such as resveratrol that can successfully counter free radicals.
  3. If you are a health freak and insist on going by a Mediterranean diet, wine is part of your regular diet. You will experience the benefits in a few weeks' time.
  4. When consumed in a measured and controlled manner, red wine can reduce a person's chances of contracting breast cancer. Wine sharpens your mind while you age; your cognitive faculties therefore do not rust.
  5. Red wine can make your skin glow from within, unlike any other wine, as white wines have only a little amount of antioxidants.
  6. Your skin feels young and rejuvenated on drinking red wine as the drink aids arterial functions of the body. Thus proper blood circulation is ensured.

Total Laparoscopic Hystrectomy (TLH)

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology -
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Total Laparoscopic Hystrectomy (TLH)

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

What is a total laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Is the removal of the uterus and cervix through four small (1/2 Abdominal incisions. Removal of the ovaries and tubes depends on the patient).

Why is this surgery used?

To treat disease of the uterus

• Fibroids


Infection in the ovaries or tubes

Pelvic pain

• Overgrowth of tissue in the lining of the uterus

• Abnormal vaginal bleeding

How do I prepare for surgery?

The lab work for your surgery must be done at least 3 days beforesurgery. Some medications need to be stopped before the surgery. Smoking can affect your surgery and recovery. Smokers may have difficulty breathing during the surgery and tend to heal more slowly after surgery. If you are a smoker, it is best to quit 6-8 weeks before surgery. You will be told at your pre-op visit whether you will need a bowel prepfor your surgery and if you do, what type you will use. The prep to clean your bowel will have to be completed the night before your surgery.

• You will need to shower at home before surgery.

• Do not wear makeup, nail polish, lotion, deodorant, or antiperspirant on the day of surgery.

• Remove all body piercings and acrylic nails.

Most women recover and are back to most activities in 4-6 weeks. Youmay need a family member or a friend to help with your day-to-day activities for a few days after surgery.

What can I expect during the surgery?

Once in the operating room, you will receive general anesthesia before the surgery to keep you from feeling pain. A tube to help you breathe will be placed in your throat. Another tube will be placed in your stomach to remove any gas or other contents to reduce the likelihood of injury during the surgery. The tube is usually removed before you wake up. A catheter will be inserted into your bladder to drain urine and to monitor the amount of urine coming out during surgery. Compression stockings will be placed on your legs to prevent blood clots in your legs and lungs during surgery. After you are asleep the laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen and carbon dioxide gas is blown into the abdomen to inflate the belly wall away from the internal organs. After you are asleep the doctor will remove the uterus, cervix, and possibly the ovaries and tubes through the 4 small abdominal incisions.

What are possible risks from this surgery?

Although there can be problems that result from surgery, we work very hard to make sure it is as safe as possible. However, problems can occur, even when things go as planned. You should be aware of these possible problems, how often they happen, and what will be done to correct them.

Possible risks during surgery include:

Bleeding: If there is excessive bleeding, you will receive a blood transfusion. Conversion to an open surgery requiring an up and down or Bikini incision: If a bigger open incision is needed during your surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for one or two nights.

• Damage to the bladder, ureters (the tubes that drain the kidneys into the bladder), and to the bowel: Damage occurs in less than 1% of surgeries. If there is damage to the bladder, urete rs, or to the bowel they will be repaired while you are in surgery.

• Death: All surgeries have a risk of death. Some surgeries have a higher risk than others. Possible risks that can occur days to weeks after surgery:

• Blood clot in the legs or lungs:Swelling or pain, shortness of breath, or chest pain are signs of blood clots.

Bowel obstruction:

A blockage in the bowel that causes abdominal painbloating, nausea and/or vomiting.

• Hernia:Weakness in the muscle at the incision that causes a lump under the skin.

• Incision opens: The abdominal or vaginal incision.

•Infection: Bladder or surgical site infection. This may cause fever,redness, swelling or pain.

•Scar tissue: Tissue thicker than normal skin forms at the site of surgery

What happens after the surgery?

• You will be taken to the recovery room and monitored for a short time before going to the observation unit.

• Depending on the length of your surgery, you may not be able to eat or drink anything until the next morning or you will be started on a liquid diet. When you are feeling better you may return to a regular diet.

• You may have cramping, feel bloated, or shoulder pain.

• You may have a scratchy or sore throat from the tube used for youranesthesia.

• You will be given medications for pain and nausea if needed.

Have the tube in your bladder removed in recovery room.

Have the compression stockings on your legs to improve circulation.

Be restarted on your routine medications.

Be given a small plastic device at your bedside to help expand your lungs after surgery.

Start walking as soon as possible after the surgery to help healingand recovery.

Stay in the hospital for 24 hours.

When will I go home after surgery?

Most women spend one night in the hospital and are ready to go home around noon -time the day after surgery. You should plan for someone to be at the hospital by noon to drive you home.

At home after surgery : If you use a bowel prep before surgery, it is common not to have a bowel movement for several days.

Call your doctor right away if you: 

• develop a fever over 100.4°F (38°C)

• start bleeding like a menstrual period or (and) are changing a pad every hour

• have severe pain in your abdomen or pelvis that the pain medication is not helping

• have heavy vaginal discharge with a bad odor

• have nausea and vomiting

• have chest pain or difficulty breathing

• leak fluid or blood from the incision or if the incision opens

• develop swelling, redness, or pain in your legs develop a rash

• have pain with urination

• Your in cision will be closed with dissolvable stitches.

Vaginal Bleeding:

• Spotting is normal. Discharge will change to a brownish color followed by yellow cream color that will continue for up to four to eight weeks. It is common for the brownish discharge to have a slight odor because it is old blood. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology


You will continue with your regular diet.

Pain: Medication for pain will be prescribed for you after surgery. Do not take it more frequently than instructed.

Stool softener: Narcotic pain medications may cause constipation. A stool softener may be needed while taking these medications.

Nausea: Anti -nausea medication is not typically prescribed.


Energy level: It is normal to have a decreased energy level after surgery. During the first week at home, you should minimize any strenuous activity. Once you settle into a normal routine at home, you will slowly begin to feel better. Walking around the house and taking short walks outside can help you get back to your normal energy level more quickly.

Showers: Showers are allowed within 24 hours after your surgery.

Climbing: Climbing stairs is permitted, but you may require some assistance when you first return home.

Lifting: For 4-6 weeks after your surgery you should not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk. This includes pushing objects such as a vacuum cleaner and vigorous exercise.

Driving: The reason you are asked not to drive after surgery is because you may be prescribed pain medications. Even after you stop taking pain medication; driving is restricted because you may not be able to make sudden movements due to discomforts from surgery.

Exercise: Exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle. You may begin normal physical activity within hours of surgery. Start with short walks and gradually increase the distance a nd length of time that you walk. To allow your body time to heal, you should not return to a more difficult exercise routine for 4 -6 weeks after your  surgery. Please talk to your doctor about when you can start exercising again.

Intercourse: No sexual activity for 8 weeks after surgery.

Work: Most patients ca n return to work between 4 -6 weeks after surgery.

You have to learn to be practical and understand the reality. The skin color is based on the genetics and each person is born with a different skin color which is a character inherited from our parents. Be more focused on getting healthy and strong and emotionally balanced. A healthy attitude will help you to overcome all kinds of misunderstandings and insecurities. Invest time and energy in learning good and healthy life-style habits.
